Encoura Grieves with the Uvalde Community

May 19, 2022

As an education organization committed to serving students, we are devastated and outraged to hear of the school tragedy in Uvalde, Texas. We condemn the murder of innocent children and educators and grieve with the families and community who have had loved ones taken from them.

We know that actions can support grieving individuals more than words, which is why our team is contributing to the “Texas Elementary School Shooting Victims Fund,” which will provide 100% of the donations directly to the victims’ families.

Our hope is that we each can slow down today, tomorrow, and the coming days to remember the 4th grade teachers that lost their lives, the students that lost their lives, and all those touched by this senseless act, and the countless others who have lost their lives in similar tragedies, and their families who continue to suffer as a result.

Innocent children must not continue to be the victims of inaction. Children and educators have the right to a safe learning environment, a safe community, and a safe home. As a country, we must do better, and we all play a role in making that a reality.
